New York, Nov. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iLuv Creative Technology today announced that it has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the Wireless Handset Accessories product category for the selfy® ecosystem, a unique series of protective cases and accessories for the Apple iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 6/6 Plus, Samsung GALAXY S5, iPad Air and iPad mini that makes it easier for users to take photos and videos. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.
Selfy® is a durable case with a dual-layer and shock-absorbent protective design that is available for iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 6/6 Plus, GALAXY S5, iPad Air and iPad mini. The innovative remote is seamlessly integrated into the case itself, sliding out when it's time to take a quick photo, then fitting securely back into the case after the photos have been taken. The selfy® remote controls the device's shutter with a simple touch of a button, without relying on any third-party apps. When the selfy® remote is out of the case, users can slide in one of six convenient accessories. These accessories include a mini tripod, car mount, helmet mount and more, and help users capture moments ranging from family reunions to outdoor activities.
"When we launched the selfy® ecosystem earlier this year, we were challenged with creating an innovative product series that made it easier for consumers to take pictures and videos on their phone or tablet. The concept of the selfy ecosystem® revolves around the selfy® case, which not only protects consumers' devices and provides them with an always accessible remote, but is also the key to an entire line of easy-to-use accessories," said William Otte, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at iLuv Creative Technology. "We are honored that the CEA also recognized the innovation behind selfy® and thank them for naming iLuv as an International CES Innovations 2015 Design and Engineering Award Honoree."
The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have beenrecognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
iLuv's selfy® ecosystem will be displayed at the 2015 International CES, which runs Jan. 6-9, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled New York, which features dozens of exhibitors and networking opportunities, and runs 4:30-7:30 PM November 11 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, New York.
Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace and unique/novel features present.
